Lively spot in a busy suburb, filled with happy sounds of people chatting, laughing, eating and enjoying their company. Great casual dining options, contemporary western cuisine.

After early flight and long day of travel I walked in for lunch. Very friendly and prompt service. Decided on the prawn and squid salad with cranberrys and chilli. The flavours in this dish were just awesome. Cooked perfectly.

We enjoyed two drinks each as well as a plate of chips. Good value for a total of A$18 including GST. Staff were pleasant as we watched the number 8 trams trundling by. It's close to Metro's South Yarra railway station.
